nashville is steve wise. he's the author of that letter and he's the president and ceo of identified, inc. steve, welcome. congratulations. i want to ask you briefly. in the first term, president obama on the stimulus package and on obama care, there was no compromise. there was no reaching across the aisle. do you believe, sir, that in the second term president obama will change and will find common ground with republicans? >> well, larry, i'm an optimist. i believe that you need to give people a chance, you need to tell them you support them and then you need to hold them accountable. that's why i felt that i needed to send that message off to the president and to my representatives, really telling them that time is now. we can't wait any longer. we've got to do something. i'll support you, but i'll also hold you accountable and watch that it's happening. >> i want to have the same positive view you do, second term, clean slate, et cetera, et cetera. so when he read your letter with your very clear message about compromise and common ground between the two parties, do you think, steve,

and the entire capitol hill family of staff of the passing of my dear friend and chief of staff steve vermilion. for nearly 25 years i have known steve as a friend, family man and committed public servant. my service in congress has been greatly enhanced by steve's invaluable advice and knowledge regarding all aspects of the legislative process. as a 17-year veteran of capitol hill, steve will be dealer missed by the capitol family for his warmth and his sense of service to this institution and our nation. steve began his service in the house of representatives in 1986, serving as communications director for then congressman bob livingston. he subsequently served as a legislative snippet for congressman james sensenbrenner, as chief of staff to former congressman lincoln diaz-balart, and my chief of staff. an avid and champion rover who, steve was recognized for his work throughout his years in congress with such distinction as the congressional staff leadership award and the congress allege hispanic leadership institute. steve demonstrated his commitment to service with great dignity these pas
of the agenda during president obama's first news conference since winning the election. steve handelsman has the report. >> reporter: president obama tried to show off the power, claiming voters backed his call for tax hikes on the rich. but that message had a distraction. the petraeus problem. >> i have no evidence at this point, from what i've seen, that classified information was disclosed, that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: the president's withholding judgnt on the fbi keeping secrets. but he praised his ex-cia chief. >> we're safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done. >> reporter: issue two was the fiscal cliff and taxes. >> what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for people who don't need it. >> reporter: republicans demand no rate hike. can there be a deal finally to cut deductions and raise what the rich pay in taxes. >> i recognize we're going to have to compromise. as i said on election night, compromise is hard. >> reporter: issue three, libya. four americans dead in benghazi. republicans today demand
about five races that we were watching very carefully. my first time was spent working with steve israel to make sure we had the resources to prevail in those races. my second time i spent was to call people who were not successful in this particular election. everybody here was getting a lot of calls -- a running is very noisy. not succeeding, the phones do not ring that much. so i wanted to hear from them, what their views were about how we go forward. then to take the calls of my colleagues to see what their view is. what i talked about here, about changing the role of money in politics, is really very important motivator for me to stay in the leader's office. i think it must be done. when people say money did not make any difference in the campaign, they all wasted their money -- that really was not true. the president of the united states, the most well known, respected person on the planet, had to spend about $1 billion to set the record straight from what that big money was putting out there. senate races, house races, tammy duckworth had $7 million spent against her of outside mo
. they could not celebrate this success without the leadership of steve israel, the chair. when i asked him to take this responsibility to serve our country and colleagues, i i said to all of you that he is a gold standard of a member of congress. he knows the policy. he cares about american people. that drives him to do the politics to increase our numbers to pass legislation that takes us for to improve the lives of americans. before i bring him on, i wanted to have a representative of the freshman class to speak on behalf of the class. i am very honored to welcome a fighter for the middle class, a real representative of his generation, congressman alec patrick murphy. his election is a cuase for celebration. his election sends the message to a new generation of americans that their voices will be heard at the table. congratulations, congressman a -elect, patch of mercy. -- patrick murphy. >> thank you for your leadership and for being here with us. thank you for your support. my name is patrick murphy from florida district 18. the youngest member of congress. i did defeatists someone you
line. >> good morning. steve, we've got so many groups and caucus they're all saying now you have your it's time for me to have mine. once that group gets what they want the next group says, well the first two got what they want and this is what we want. this, i don't see this ending. it's very sad situation and unfortunately i don't see much of a future as long as we have all these groups and caucuses. can i give you constructive criticism. i've been watching c-span now for decades and especially "washington journal". if i don't see it live i'll watch the tape. the new gentlemen you had on twice last week as a moderator on friday and before spends too much time reading newspaper. i'm not saying that some of the articles aren't pertinent but much too much time is spent when he's reading the newspaper and people are not able to get through. >> ed thanks for watching and being a loyal viewer and listener. of course you can check out this program anytime at journal@cspan.org there's a perspective as the chart saying yep the federal government is stillen ensure wensurer. accounting for nea
? the answer is different groups will be affected very differently. steve liesman has more on the numbers. >> what we do know is if we go over the cliff, no change in what is mandated by those rules. everybody will pay more. we've divided up the country into quintiles, one-fifth, one-fifth, one-fifth. here's what happens with the cliff. for the lowest they go up by 3.7%, second 4.1%. if you're in the middle, where most people are, up 3.8% all the way to the top, 5.8%. what about the top 1%? their numbers go up by 7.2%. here's a way to think about it. this is what thelma and louise would pay extra if they went over the cliff. here's what mr. thurston howell would pay if they went over the cliff. let's take a look at the actual dollar values beyond percentage points. we know we have health care law taking effect and that will only affect the top fifth. here's your dollar values for the income bracket ets is. add on the amt, when they expire, get rid of the bush tax cuts. for the wealthy, a big chunk. it goes down to the second quintile. we get rid of some payroll tax cuts. down the line f y
to immigration. >> i was an immigration lawyer for 15 years, and as a conservative voice, understand what steve is saying, but i think we have to realize as the republican party that we're never going to be a majority party if we do not figure out a way to reach the hispanic community. so we have to find what i call -- and i have talked about this for two years -- a conservative consensus on emigration. we have to figure out how steve and i will sit and agree on a bill and people at this table that will actually do something about our broken immigration system. one of the biggest things that conservatives talk about often is that we want to fix a broken government. if you know anything about immigration law, this system is absolutely broken in the united states. we need to figure out a way where people can come to the united states through a legal system, border protection, all those things that we have to do, but at the same time we have to figure out what we can -- which cannot keep putting the ball for the next congress to fix this issue. so i try to get the conservatives here in the house t
] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. which isn't rocket science. ♪♪ you can help othersnk along the way. ♪ ♪ a portion of every bottle that they sell goes to fight ♪ ♪ breast cancer and i think that's swell. ♪ ♪ the more you take, the more they'll pay, ♪ ♪ so make them write a big check today. ♪ ♪ and if you're feeling a little slow, ♪ ♪ then 5-hour energy will help you go. ♪ ♪ so buy a bottle of pink lemonade and ♪ ♪ you can help fight breast cancer today. ♪ >>> it's clear that as a political party we have some work to do. i think the principles of our party are sound. how we talk about who we are as a party is clearly, conversations are underway and. >> chris:
the general's former spokesman retired colonel steve boylan told abc the affair began then, after he had left the army which strictly for bids adultery. >> this all started about two months after he was in the c.i.a. as the director and just so you know it alsonded about four months ago. he deeply hurt the family. he knows that. he acknowledges it. right now his whole focus is going to be geared towards taking care of the family and getting through this. >> brown: it's been widely reported that the affair was uncovered during an f.b.i. invtigaon prompted b 37-year-old jill kelly of tampa, florida. a friend of the petraeus family. the general's former associates insist there was no romantic involvement between them. even so according to news accounts, kelly began getting threatening emails from broadwell. the f.b.i. started investigating last summer and turned up evidence of the petraeus-broadwell affair. that in turn raised questions of a possible security breach. intelligence officials say the justice department informed national intelligence director james clapper last week on election day.
. he finally got it at that point he said i'm terribly sorry my name is steve if you want to report me and he ran for the door. i felt bad for steve. i like steve. i chased after him to make sure he knew no hard feelings. so every time i see him in the hall i say high so he knows there are no hard feelings. although it did occur to me, his name is probably not steve. [laughter] so when i started this year, 2010 i was looking forward to two things, two steps that i believed would help us fundamentally transform our government into that kind of government or something more cleesly representing or resemithaling kind of government that our founding father's envisioned for us. one of those events i knew would occur in june, probable toward the end of june probable the last thursday in june chi quickly identified as june 28. the other date that i recognize as potentially transform ma tive of our government, the other date that i recognize that i thought would probably have a positive impact on the development of our constitutional system of government was november 6. and i would just like to
values. >>> finally, last week steve schmidt said on meet the press that a lot of swing voters think of the republican party as one of loons and wackos. mike murphy, another republican strategist just weighed in on "meet the press." here he is. >> this is an existential crisis for the republican party and we have to have a brutal discussion about it. we alienate young voters because of gay marriage, we alienate hispanics and we've lost our connection to middle class economics. we have an operative class which isn't competent. we have to get a party view of america that's not out of rush limbaugh's dream journal. >> well said. up until election night these experts were predicted a romney victory. they should go down with the ship. the titanic in fact instead of putting on dresses so they can get in the life boats. how did that sound? >>> up next, replacing hillary clinton. president obama's choice may come down to john kerry or susan rice. will the president go with the 2004 democratic presidential candidate or his apparent favorite? this is "hardball," the place for politics. when yo
virginia, steve centanni. fox news. we salute all those have served to keep america safe. thank you to your families, your service, and your sacrifice and for being fair, balanced and unafraid. >> shepard: this is the fox report. tonight, the affair that brought down the general. the investigations begin and the questions mount about david petraeus. his mistress and their emails. thousands of emails. did his secret lover have access to national secrets? tonight, what she told people about the attack on our embassy in benghazi. and why the cia insists she doesn't know what she is talking about. plus, two weeks after super storm sandy, tens of thousands of americans are still in the dark. >> how long is it going to take to get our electricity back? >> i am very unhappy. [chanting] >> we certainly understand the frustration that's out there. [chanting] >> more trucks, more trucks. >> shepard: tonight, how long before the lights come back? and volunteers from louisiana bringing supplies to the northeast. pay back for all the help they got after hurricane katrina. >> we wanted to reach o
to ask steve about the natural gas developments for passenger cars. i wanted to see what he thought about the prices for those. i think they are in the low $2 per gallon range. and see what the holdup is with this industry, why it hasn't taken off quicker? guest: i think the reason is because it is expensive to build a natural gas fired car. it is hard to refuel it. you cannot pull up your local gasoline station where you do now for gasoline or diesel. i think the first advances we will see a natural gas-fired vehicles will probably be in fleet vehicles. they tend to come back to the same location. you do not have to change the entire infrastructure of nearly 100,000 gasoline stations. host: anything else? steve, florida, a democrat. caller: good morning. i would like to ask a question if he could explain it to a lot of my friends. for some reason, they think because we're going to outpace saudi arabia, can you please explain to these people in oil production that if it is $150 a barrel in the united states, it is $150 in beijing, china. they all think it is our oil because it is coming o
, working with steve israel to make sure we had the intellectual, financial, whatever resources to prevail in those races. my second time that i spent was to call people who were not successful in this particular election, because everybody here was getting a lot of calls. winning is very noisy. not succeeding is -- the bells don't ring that much. so i wanted to hear from them, what their views were about how we go forward. and then to absorb the calls of my colleagues to see what their view is. but i -- what i talked about here about changing the role of money and politics is really a very important motivator for me to stay in the leader's office. i think it must be done. when people say that, oh, and i read in the course of this week, money didn't make any difference in the campaign. they alwasted their money. well, that really wasn't true. the president of the united states, the most well-known famous respected person on the planet had to spend about $1 billion to set the record straight from what that other big money was putting out there. senate races, house races. tammy douglas had $
are turning to steve sloan. tell us about the time line this week. caller: the president begins with a series of meetings with corporate leaders over the next few days to reestablish his relationship with the business community after his election. it all culminates on friday with a meeting with congressional leaders to discuss how to move forward on the fiscal cliff. host: what has each side said moving into the negotiations? i know that there was a white house address west we from president obama. caller: the president continued to push for revenue of, saying it was vital to be part of a balanced solution. notably, he said nothing about raising tax rates. many people are taking this to assume that he is open to that revenue by closing loopholes as opposed to raising tax rates. on capitol hill, most republican leaders, including john boehner, have shifted in recent days, and they are talking more about their openness, much more so than they were before the election. they are saying that they are open to revenue, but only in the formal closing loopholes, not raising rates. host: the front page
this morning is about the white house national security team. here's what steve tweets in. i am more confident of this national security team than the one that told me there were w.m.d. in iraq. morris in san diego, california, joins us now. republican caller. hi. caller: good morning. i have no confidence whatsoever in this national security team. in fact i have less confidence in the president. i think this whole thing of benghazi leads right to the white house. right to the oval office. and president obama has made some statements already that are so contradictory of each other there is no way in the world he could explain the contradiction of his comments. talk about a transparent administration. yeah, they are transparent all right of you can see right through them. and they are as corrupt as any i have seen. i think this is going to lead to impeachment. i don't think that's an overstatement. i think it will lead right to impeach. and i think he will be convicted of it. host: it's almost laughable to see is senator mccain comment about susan rice's qualifications after picking sara palin
the rest and first thing, steve says, i can't afford to give 10%, i tell them you can't afford not to. when you give, i believe you receive. i don't have an agenda, i don't care where you give your money to. if you're tithing at church that's great or wounded warriors project, awesome, but if you have money, you have to give. people that are good with their money, they give. it's not common or uncommon sense, but rethinks the way you think about money and you have to give 10%. >> ainsley: great advice. >> clayton: the book dollars and uncommon sense, thank you for waking up with us on military time he can get up at 4 a.m. >> ainsley: he's done a for a while. thanks steven for your service. what do you do if your mother-in-law starts choking at the thanksgiving dinner table. do you save her? of course you do. >> clayton: what? >>, but, seriously, next the life saving tips you're going to need this thursday. >> clayton: and talk about a lot of nerve. union workers at one of the nation's largest airports threatening to walk off the job on one of the busiest travel days of the years. will you b
and for the middle east to finally begin to deliver for its people. >> steve, concluding question, what do you see as the role of the united states in the world today? there is the day amongst foreign-policy experts on american exceptional was and, the decline of the u.s. role, the desire to pull back. you gave advice to the world affairs council before. what is their role? >> the world affairs council, you are a wonderful forum in local communities across this country, bringing people together from all walks of life, having a debate on these issues. the foreign policy debates of our presidential campaigns are, i find, quite vacuous and full of straw man red herrings and do not get to the real issues. well, in your forms, you can get to the real issues and invite politicians to hold their feet to the fire and do not expect these kinds of superficial answers, which we get from campaigns. i have been in washington for a long time, too long, but my wife is a washingtonian, so we are still here, and every 10 years you get this narrative that america is in decline, overstretched, downsize your objectiv
